Women’s Giving Circle Funding

Looking for funding for a special project?

Lions Gate Hospital Foundation’s Women’s Giving Circle invites funding applications from VCH employees for projects that address a minimum of two of VCH’s four organizational goals:

  • Promote the best care
  • Promote better health for our communities
  • Develop the best workforce
  • Innovate for sustainability

Applications can be for capital items or unique program opportunities for Coastal (North Shore) up to a maximum value of $50,000. Individual requests for education, conference support or salary replacement requests will not be considered.

The 2017 application process is now closed. Thank you to those VCH staff who have submitted applications. You will be notified accordingly by the end of September. The 2018 application process will open in June 2018 so please check back then if you have a project you’d like funded.

The Women’s Giving Circle was founded by 10 philanthropic North Shore residents in December, 2014.  The goal of the Circle is to fund unique projects on the North Shore that address one of the four organizational goals of VCH; engage other women in philanthropy and, learn more about health care in their community.
